Solo Violinist, Napa , Sonoma, Small Wedding Music, Music for Proposals
I'm a Romantic Solo Violinist that can create exactly the right mood for your most special moments: surprise marriage proposals, birthday parties, elegant corporate events, intimate dinners for 2, small weddings and elopements.
Based in the San Francisco and Napa Valley/Sonoma County areas, I provide music for winery weddings and parties as well as funerals and memorial services. Music makes every important moment unique and memorable.
I know how challenging choosing music for a special, one-time event like a wedding can be. So many people have ideas for you. It takes time and effort to figure out, and it’s impossible to please everyone. Sometimes, it’s easy to lose track of what you want yourself.
You deserve a delightful wedding day enhanced by the perfect live music. Katrina Wreede Musical Groups started more than 25 years ago with one goal–to provide the no-hassle elegant and fun live music you want.
My first professional wedding music experience was at age 15, and I was hooked. There is nothing better than creating the soundtrack for someone’s most precious life moments. It’s fun to learn and arrange new songs, and when a client has a special emotional connection, it’s even better. I learned many popular styles while performing with artists like: Smokey Robinson, Johnny Mathis, the Moody Blues, Natalie Cole, Sarah Brightman, John Denver, Josh Groban, Barry White and Page and Plant. I’m proud that songs by these artists, along with many others, are in our repertoire list.
Planning the ceremony songs is one of my favorite parts of working with a bride because it’s so important to find the exact right feel. There’s no do-over. Sometimes it’s a song from a first date or honoring a parent or grandparent or that says exactly the right words. I always look forward to finding out about each person’s tastes, dreams and traditions, and it’s a thrill every time to see how happy people are walking in to the exact right song.
Ultimately, I find great joy in using music to create a thoroughly memorable day that leaves no one disappointed. My goal is to help others feel confident, savvy, sophisticated and beautiful from music that I played for them.
